           Once again, FSN Arizona is set to bring one of its productions to Gentle Ben's in Tucson, and this time around, the University of Arizona football team is the reason why.


            Wildcat football fans can mix their lunch hour with a preview of Arizona's 2004 football season on Wednesday, Aug. 25, when FSN Arizona tapes its Wildcat Insider Kickoff Show at Gentle Ben's (865 E. University Blvd.) from 12 - 1 p.m.  Fans are invited to attend and be a part of the show's audience -- seating is limited.


            During the taping of the show, UA head football coach Mike Stoops will join FSN Arizona's Sean Mooney at Gentle Ben's to look ahead to his inaugural season at the helm of the Wildcats. In addition, junior free safety Darrell Brooks and junior running back Mike Bell will be there as well to tape an interview segment for the show. Mooney is also scheduled to

be joined by FSN Arizona's UA football announcers Dave Sitton & Larry Smith,

who will give their insights into the season ahead.


            After it's taped next Wednesday, the Wildcat Insider Kickoff Show will then air on FSN Arizona on Friday, Sept. 3, at 6:30 & 10 p.m., which is the night before the UA's season opener against Northern Arizona University.


            This marks the second time that FSN Arizona and Gentle Ben's have hooked up for a University of Arizona athletics-themed television production. Back in October of 2002, Tom Arnold and Best Damn Sports Show Period taped portions of a highly successful telecast from the restaurant's patio to help kick off the basketball team's Midnight Madness events.


            FSN Arizona continues to televise the most regional sports action in the state, airing approximately 1,200 hours of original local programming a year. The network is the exclusive cable television home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Coyotes, Arizona Rattlers, University of Arizona, Arizona State University, Arizona Rattlers and the nightly  Arizona Sports Report. The network is currently seen in 1.8 million households in Arizona & New Mexico and can also be seen across the country via home satellite services.
